Sssshhhh....Super Secret Sauvignon Sale.

We don't normally sell this wine direct, but time has run out for it to leave the Buttonwood nest and who better to enjoy this wine and price but you. Because you've been here for us, and you deserve a glass of crisp, refreshing, estate-grown, family-owned, sustainable wine - and a super affordable price!

Tasting Notes:  A swirl brings a bouquet of lemongrass, white peach and mandarin orange from this classic mélange. A sip brings notes of lemon-lime, orange peel and kiwi with hints of marzipan on the mid-palate from the kiss of Sémillon in the blend. Zippy and zesty with pleasing acidity, and a finish with reminders of pineapple guava and seaside breezes.


Just $79 for six bottles or $139 for a 12-bottle case! (no further discounts apply)


While supplies last. Stock up - especially those parents who must home-school your kids. This is your back-to-school special! Available for shipping or curbside pickup at Buttonwood
